Q: I'm 60 and a cancer survivor. Six years ago I was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma (LMS) of the left spermatic duct after removal of the tumour. I had a second operation (wide margin) to remove my left testicle. My libido seems to have gone downhill after that.
Doc, do you think that my being downsized to a 'single carburetor' is affecting my sex life? My significant other (she's always there for me - the pillar of my life) is eight years younger than me and is experiencing the onset of menopause, so it's sort of a double whammy. We're doing it once fortnightly on average versus two or three times a week when I was running on twin carbs.
